I just can’t say no to crafting, no matter what state my home is in (And today it happens to be up for sale.  Did I mention that?).  In fact, it seems to ease the stress.  I made these simple skirts this afternoon from two corduroy prints I couldn’t pass up at Joann’s.  I used half a yard of fabric for each, using this tutorial as a guide, and then finished the bottom hem.  The brown skirt has a zig-zag stitch, and I used the scallop function on my sewing machine for the gray skirt.  (That was way easier than I thought it would be.)  So in about 2 hours, I made 2 skirts for the little girl that will be perfect for Autumn.

Can you believe it’s September already?

    Cute, cute, cute. This is nostalgia with a twist - corduroy in the fall made by mom - but with fun new pattern. Lucky Emily.

    I am absolutely in love with JoAnn’s cordory this season! I hope you got some extra fabric for yourself! [I got the obnoxious teal with brown and pink owls to make a jumper for myself :-)]

    Don’t you love the scallop edge? I’ve been using it for so much lately - napkins, hankies, pillowcase dresses, etc. I was going to make my little one some skirts soon, and now I think I’ll use it on them, too! Very cute skirts. Great job!
